the emanuel family. rahm is the mayor of chicago. he's been the white house chief of staff under president obama, a member of congress from illinois and special counsel to president clinton in the white house. he's famously profane, enormously confident, he speaks and moves fast. a few more things to know about him, he lost part of a finger after a meat slicer accident while working at arby's. he's trained in ballet. and actually moves like a dancer. it's more of a glide than a walk. even when he's about to close the door in your face. he is the first mayor of chicago not named daly in 22 years. and it willy, to his sorrow, frustration and consternation, chicago has become the poster city for gun violence. you've got kids killing each other in your city, and that's a big deal. on top of everything else in your life, that goes to sleep with you every night and it's here with you in this room right now. >> well, yes. i wake up, the first thing i get is the overnight of what happened. i make it a purpose, which is not done, never done, i call each of the families whose kids have bee

the lecture that he gave to obama in his own digs in the white house. what accounts for the shift here? is it that he is on his own terrain, or is this a genuine change of attitude on netanyahu's part? >> the two sides have to begin thinking about what happens next. during his first term, president obama was focused on ending two wars. now he faces two different challenges, iran could be potential nuclear capability or what happens next in syria. both offer challenges that israel also faces in and work existential way. there are of common mind. the key question is, what happens next, whether it's on iran, syria or ultimately the conflict? >> can we afford a symbolic trip? there is a lot at stake, what the region is going through, what the partners of israel have seen as necessary to protect itself, what the palestinian response has been to two-state solutions. how we figure our way out of here, and how does the president respond? >> the president is finding out that it's very difficult to lower expectations on a visit by the president of the united states. i think that the logic b

. obama made stops in israel, the west bank and jordan. cnn's chief national correspondent john king is in amman and joins us live. john, nice to see you. it's pretty low expectations for this trip. the white house careful not to really set a bar very high. any surprises come out of it? >> i think they set that bar so low so they knew they could jump it. there were surprises. the best test is not how high the president feels about improving relationships with netanyahu or giving speech to a people that was well received. first a sober discussion about the syrian refugee crisis and going to petra to visit the ancient ruins. he may feel he's in better standing with the israelis and the prime minister, the question is, every american president in my lifetime has picked up this ball, the middle east peace process and tried to deal with it. bill clinton years on it, george w. bush at the end of his term. we'll see if president obama has success. he came here with a somewhat dysfunctional relationship with the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, and they were actually have been fro

happen until obama leaves israel. the white house doesn't want anything to distract from the positive visuals and positive vibes of this trip. but obama did say there's a red line about the use of chemical weapons, but did not specify the penalties. where is the red line, let's say the israelis are right and there were chemicals, barely over the line, maybe chlorine gas, that's not nerve agents. i think that assad may have been testing the waters. if chemicals were used, you've got to watch if he's going to use them in the future as the situation grows increaselying desperate and feels he has nothing to do lose, but meanwhile for us and for the israelis, apart from the geopolitical mess and instability, the real and present danger is chemical weapons falling into the hands of islamist fanatics. we are apparently, i'm told, we're told, we're working on a plan to deal with that militarily if necessary, but if we have to, megyn, it's going to be ugly and tough and messy. >> megyn: and i wanted just to clarify so it was the israeli minister of intelligence and strategic affairs w

he wants to try. the question is, you know, will president obama really back him? because we know that in the end this is the kind of a conflict where you need the white house involved. it very quickly becomes a domestic-political issue. >> ifill: it does become a question because this state department at least for the last four years has been famously... or at least the foreign policy has been famously run out of the white house. do you detect any shift in that? >> not really. many presidents by the time their second term comes around their thoughts turn to can i achieve middle east peace and something lasting legacy that i can put on the board, if you will. but at this point i think, you know, president obama has gotten a lot of points f the eloquence and the cleverness with which he offered this speech over the head in some ways over region's stalemated political leadership but he hasn't really outlined a very new in terms of negotiating points platform that suggests we can pick up new diplomacy. frankly, we've been talking about such a daunting li of chaenges for kerry to wor

claiming president obama lives it up in the white house. a lifestyle of excess, talking about chefs on air force one, movie workers and a dog walker. the fact checker called bachmann's claims absurd. one right winger agrees. >> michele bachmann said it's long past to cut the nonsense and look at things clearly. michele bachmann actually trivializes it as a huge problem and irresponsible spending by the federal government. two words, not good. >> okay, everyone. i'll let you set your dvrs and tivos. are you ready? bill o'reilly is right. i agree with bill. this is another trivial pursuit. it's not about policy. it's another silly personal attack like all the ones we've become used to. whether it's claiming the president wasn't born in this country or that he didn't really go skeet shooting or attacking his lavish vacations where he grew up or for presenting the first lady an award at the oscar's or for slamming him for filling out ncaa brackets. bill was right. but i wonder if he told his colleagues that these attacks were a waste of time? >> the misplaced priorities of our celebrity pr
